Chicken Taco – Healthy Meal

Same old dinner menu as clock work, omg! it was really boring. That is when I realized I have to change the menu to something healthy and tasty before I cook anything cheesey and unhealthy. I always have my refrigerator packed with marinara and grilled chicken. Eventually it became an easy meal that happens within  6 – 7 minutes. Adding bell pepper for an extra spice took my healthy taco to another level of awesomeness. My husband  is enjoying the taco, that includes making a mess in the table. He literally plays with the ingredient and tries different proportion.
